Dave Chisnall is through to the final at the World Grand Prix after seeing off Glen Durrant and he was over the moon in his post match interview.

The St Helens ace has once again shown how good he is and after playing with new darts, in a matter of weeks he has hit a nine-darter with them and reached another major final.

For Chisnall though it is about banishing former demons and he said that after playing in the 2013 final where he only got two legs, he wants to finally claim a major title and shun the darting tag of being a nearly man.

“I enjoyed it and I’m over the moon to be in the final,” said Chisnall. “Glen’s such a good player and he made it tough for me. He’s a three-time World Champion and he never gave up.

“I scored well but my starting wasn’t brilliant and I struggled to hit tops tonight. Double 18 saved me a few times too and the 170 was special, but the fourth set was the crucial one.

“It was nip and tuck and Glen could have won that fourth set, so the 25 I took out was massive. I’m very happy to be through but I want to play better in the final.

“I was poor in the 2013 final and I only won two legs, but that’s gone now and I want to win the title this time.”
